this month…

Framing 101 with Jan Dalton & Renee Bruce was a big success Sept. 30.

NOTE: Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Art Forum group will no longer be meeting at the Ponds. The next meeting, on Monday, October 15, will be held at the home of member
Margaret Hoybach
1720 Congressional Blvd.
Pine Forest Country Club
Summerville, SC
This is a bit northwest of downtown, accessed off of Route 78. As stressed before, all members are welcome. The location may change more often in future, but Art Forum will continue to meet every third Monday of the month unless otherwise announced. All the more reason to be current with your email information!

Jurying In    Jurying in will occur at the Nov. 1 meeting. Please notify me personally by Monday, October 29 at or at
708-699-1154 if you wish to “jury in.”
The framing process and other details are covered in your handbooks on pages 11-15. The handbook is also available to download from a drop-down button under Artist Demos. The basic process is simple:
Summerville Artist Guild offers the opportunity to Jury in as an exhibiting artist twice a year, once at our November meeting and again at our February meeting. After reading the Jurying Guidelines for Exhibiting Status, (pg. 11) and How to preparing for hanging your art (pg. 15), you are ready to make the next step.

1.  In November or February several days prior to the scheduled meeting you will need to contact the current President to let her/him know you are ready to be juried in. (It is important you let the President know so arrangements can be made for judges).
2.  Bring your 3 works of art prepared as stated in the guidelines at 6:00 pm. There will be a separate room set up in the Church for the Jury-in process. Leave your work in that room. This is a private procedure and is done behind closed doors.
3.  Go to the meeting.
4.  After the meeting go back to the room and pick up your work.
5.  You will be notified prior to the next meeting if your work met the standard for an Exhibiting member. This notice will be sent out as quickly as possible, however we ask for your patience, sometimes it takes longer than expected.

Finally, here’s the December All Member Show form. This will also be located on the website as a drop-down button under “Home.” Drop off date is Wed., Dec. 5 from 1-3 pm; Pickup is Fri., Dec. 28 from 1-3 pm. The Christmas party and demo will be Wed., Dec. 12 from 6 pm to 7:30 sharp.
